Synopsis
Following the death of Superman, Flash battles Terra-Man. But soon we learn that Terra-Man is actually Superman, who has been transformed into Terra-Man. Superman soon learns that an alien wants Terra-Man dead, so Terra-Man put Superman in his place. With the help of Superman actor Gregory Reed, Superman is able to trick Terra-Man into coming out of hiding. Green Lantern helped the Flash simulate super-powers for Reed.
